Lectionary Readings for the Coming Week
Welcome to The First Presbyterian Church in Springfield!
We are a welcoming congregation that seeks to cultivate disciples of Jesus Christ in a community of learning, healing and sharing. Located in the heart of Flourtown, we are rich in history and we are boldly forging our future for which we know God is preparing us. Our congregation believes in the importance of family; commitment to our neighborhood and world through mission; and nurturing spiritual values through our ministries of worship, education, and fellowship.
